My thought exactly--that's a real nice stable of centers.

Awesome news.

It's like the opposite of last off-season

Everything is indeed coming up Milhouse. Free agents? Just as good!

This feels like a UFA acquisition.

Helm still sounds pretty concerned and uncertain, in Malik's reports today.

Is no contact this week and no scrimmage.

Holland is just exciting the fan base because he still wants to be able to play that "getting Helm back at the deadline is like a blockbuster trade acquisition!" card.

Good news, though he's only healthy as long as he's healthy, if you catch my drift. We'll see if he has any more setbacks.

I only wish it were true.. A messed up back never seems to truly "heal"... (from working in disability insurance)

I think people should expect Helm to play on the fourth line and as a specialist more this season. Andersson has a spot and an absolute role on this hockey club. He's going to get a good amount of minutes.

I believe he has a spot for sure. His role should just be 4th line center that needs to be better offensively and work on his foot speed. He may play on a third line with Nyquist and Tatar since they have chemistry. But I think people have overrated what he is. Maybe I was watching a different player when he was up with the Wings.

I really like Andersson's game and while him playing 4th line centre is a luxury, I think he's got more brain power (and perhaps skill) than just a simple 4th line minute eater.

I agree he needs to start picking spot to jump in more in order to move up the chain. It feels some of his talent is wasted doing nothing sometimes. However I'm pretty content with his play right now. Especially against some eastern conference forwards who needs to be watched very closely. If he is playing with Nyquist and other offensive players, Andersson is better suited to provide a cover for them

I remember that one Brunner quote at playoff time, when he said "...it's always me and Gus against Babs and Andy in the team meetings.... We'd like to go offence but they know how to defence..." something like that.

Andersson just sounds like coaches dream and a perfect defensively sound team player. And I was impressed about his 56% faceoff percentage at playoffs. Huge development from regular season numbers when the matchups got harder. Emmerton is still stuck at 45-47% level after two seasons. It took less than half a season for Andersson to overtake him at center hierarchy and at faceoff dot and never look back. That's how it goes, competition pushes the weakest links out.

As I see, of course Darren Helm (at 100% form) would be better center than current Andersson. But if we keep that Griffins-line together, 6'2 Andersson is the only fit between two 5'10-5'11 midgets in Nyquist and Tatar. We don't have another big-sized center if we don't put Franzen there. All the others are 5'11.

That's why, because of line chemistries, Andersson would be maybe higher than he should be in theorethical team hiararchy.

If we don't use that Griffins-line together, that changes things immediately. Then Helm goes to 3rd line and Andersson centers the 4th.
